Hi everyone!

Let’s all give it up for one of the cutest couples ever: Cody & Hayley

Hayley told me all about how her and Cody met when Cody’s aunt introduced them. They talked until he went to Basic Training where they wrote back and forth until he was stationed in Charleston, SC and then they were practically inseparable.

She also filled me in on the proposal.  Cody was quite bad at keeping a secret. He was so nervous the day of. She had picked out a ring at her aunts jewelry store, Marthaler’s Jewlers, “just in case” Cody needed some advice. So the day before it started snowing endlessly and they went to Mohegan Park to look around and she loved it!  She told him “that is so beautiful it’s like Elsa’s wonderland!” So the next morning they went right back to that most beautiful spot above the lake.  Cody mumbled and fumbled with his words until Hayley graciously accepted his proposal to make her the happiest girl!

Their wedding date is set for July 9, 2017.  They will be getting married at the beautiful mountains below Asheville, SC and their reception will be inside a beautiful barn filled with southern love, dancing, and personal touches.  Hayley is SO SO SO excited because it will be the Fourth of July weekend so there will literally be fireworks along with the “fire works” of their love! It’ll be a giant cookout very relaxed and happy during their favorite holiday!  They’re not just excited about the details, though. They’re also excited to spend the rest of their lives together.  When I asked Hayley how she felt about marrying Cody, she said, “There is such a special relationship built with your best friend. The military has kept us hours apart for so long, neither of us can wait to be able to see one other everyday!  It’s so clear that this couple is head-over-heels for each other!

You’ll see what I mean when you see the photos.

If there’s one thing that saddens me, it’s that I don’t often have the opportunity to document birth stories for families.  Because of that, Fresh 48 sessions are the next best thing! I still get to be one of the very first people to meet and snuggle all of these little miracles! If you’ve never heard of a Fresh 48 session before, A fresh 48 session is a special session documenting the precious moments in the first 48 hours of your newborn’s life. I come to the hospital within 48 hours of your baby’s birth to document those priceless moments before your baby comes home. These are not traditional newborn sessions (no poses, lights, or props) and allow me to capture your family’s newness in a natural way.

This is Brooklyn!  Her Fresh 48 session was shot at a hospital in New London, CT.  About 3 weeks before she arrived, I did her mommy’s maternity session at  The Branford House at Avery Point in Groton, CT and then just one short week after she was born she spent some time with me in the studio for her newborn session.  Both of those sessions will be posted to the blog very soon!  If you are expecting your own little miracle and are interested in one of my Fresh 48 sessions or Newborn Sessions, click the “contact” tab at the top of the screen.
